I need to have this product on a new RHEL 6.2 installation. I have installed RHEL a couple of times thinking I just need to select the correct module but both times the product does not seem to be available for installation. When I type:
# yum install vsftpd
No package vsftpd available.
Error: Nothing to do
I've looked at the other posts but they have not helped. Any help would be appreciated. I was under the impression that the product would be installed automatically.
Also, I think to use the update manager on RHEL, you need a subscription. And if you do not have one, you would be better off converting RHEL into CentOS.
If you have the subscription and are connected to the internet, you may want to check the yum configuration in /etc/yum.repos.d and /etc/yum.conf.
Thanks for the replies. The server is going to be used for one specific application and RHEL 6.2 is the only version that is supported, so that's what I have to use. This is also an install in a virtual environment (VMware) and it was installed using an ISO image. I'm still stuck and looking for answers. There are several other installations of this application I mentioned that proceeded without the issues I'm having, so I know it works.
